Clueless in Berlin? I can help!

My name is Dani and I am a native German, brought up and raised in Tanzania. I speak fluent German and English and I have experience with everything you might find overwhelming when moving to the city. So if you need help some help, just let me know :) I can accompany you to the following places:

- Arbeitsamt (employment office)
- Job center
- Bürgeramt (registration office)
- Finanzamt (tax office)
- SCHUFA (General Credit Protection Association)
- Ausländerbehörde (foreign registration office)
- Doctors / health insurance agencies

I know the tricks of the trade! And I can also help you write/translate your CV or a cover letter in German, and help you prepare for job interviews.

Email me for more information at

NB: I do not offer any legal advice, just advice on how to get by in Berlin "mit den Ämtern", as we say in German :D
